Lunchtime on the boat
It’s usually lunchtime at the Blue Lagoon.
But on the day I visited, it was storm. So our boat docked at the port of Kozo Island for lunch. Lunch was sandwiches and salads.
It usually enjoy swimming in the Blue Lagoon after lunch.
However, the Blue Lagoon was closed due to strong winds, so it was changed to Santa Marija Bay beach.
Santa Marija Bay beach is also on Comino. This beach is rocky and perfect for snorkeling.
There was a change in the tour due to the storm, but it was also a valuable experience and a lot of fun.
Also, the ferry to Comino Island was canceled on that day, so we were lucky that we could only visit Comino Island on a tour.
Return to hotel
After swimming a lots, return to the port by the boat while watching the sunset. A bus will take you from the port to your hotel.
The cruising tour was the best because it was able to deal with weather troubles and I was able to concentrate on just having fun.
